Unable to sleep well, rapidly gaining weight, need help
Over the last 1 month, I've not been able to sleep more than 4 hours and I automatically wake up with no alarm, even in the weekends. Rapidly gaining weight too. Not able to concentrate at work, even basic tasks take 3-4x more time. Late 20s Indian male. Have any of you encountered this, what did you do?
I believe I have a good job right now, luckily past track record has placed me on a decent professional path I'm happy with. Have an ongoing personal/family problem over the past 1-2 years but nothing 'new' in the last month, I don't think it's that either. Thankfully no major medical problems, decent physical condition (do 5k in 27 min regularly). Thankfully financially comfortable too. Live in a nice, sunny US city.
I'm afraid of taking medication to sleep since it could become a lifelong thing. I'm not big on travel, but I'm definitely open to trying that if you did it and helped (the general internet seems to think so). Do I just take 2 weeks off and chill at home etc?
